The group also mentioned their song “Slow Motion,” written and composed by Chanhyuk of AKMU, also holds a great therapeutic message.

The song is one of the album’s slower-paced songs and empowers the idea of holding hands tightly with others living through this tough world.

I was able to comprehend the power of the word ‘Together’ as I worked with the group. I believe there is nothing I can’t do when I have my members because it’s not just my dream, but it’s our dream.

TREASURE definitely felt the hardship of COVID as they debuted last year in August. Though the group has been active with making music and other content for their fans, they have never really properly met their fans in person.

So far the group has done a lot of fansign over video calls, but the group shared they really want to meet face to face.
